Owner Profile

Your Hosts

Hi there, We're so pleased to have you visiting our website. I realize there's a lot to choose from and so many options to consider and sort through. Perhaps it would be helpful to know a bit more about who will be hosting your stay.

Well, to start with, the vacation rental business is not new to us. We have owned 2 other rentals (Park City, Utah and Costa Rica) over the last 15 years. Our experience and passion for travel hosting led us to our 3rd property in Bigfork, MT. It only took us one trip to this area to know we had found our next home-away. My friends tell me that the "hospitality” business is my natural niche. As a minister's wife, I always seem to be the one who hosts the parties, plans the gatherings, plays tour guide and opens my house to unexpected guests. I currently manage both our properties and handle all the bookings. So rest assured knowing you're dealing directly with the property owner and the person most knowledgeable about the property and local area.

Professionally, I wear many hats. When I'm not busy with our rental properties, I am with clients as a professional Interior Stylist with over 25 years experience. It's this expertise I used to design and furnish Mystic Mountain Retreat and create a unique “themed” experience in each room. My intention is for guests to enter our property and feel like they are in a warm and welcoming "home" rather then just another generic rental space; to not only see a beautiful space when they enter, but also feel and sense our hospitality even in our absence.

When we are not traveling and enjoying one of our vacation properties (which we do frequently), we live in Southern California in the north county of San Diego. Not a bad place to live! My husband is the senior minister of a large non-denominational spiritual center. We are blessed with one beautiful son who is now 16. He too has a passion for travel and counts the days in between our Mystic Mountain Montana stays until we return.

During our winter stays in Bigfork we both enjoy skiing at Whitefish or nordic skiing at Glacier in the spring is fabulous. We even ski cross country right out our front door, around the lake. I do yoga often and my favorite platform is right on our lower, lake front deck. In the warmer summer months we enjoy being outside hiking, boating, rafting or working in the yard. In September each year I host a women's transformational leadership retreat at Mystic Mountain.

We appreciate you taking the time to give Mystic Mountain your consideration. I do hope you will have the opportunity to experience the magic this amazing property has to offer you, your family and friends to create lasting memories. We look forward to welcoming you to our home-away in the near future.

Warmly, Kalli, & Christian Sorensen
